What You'll Get


Boat captains must master nautical lexicon before sailing the seas to ensure that they can distinguish port, which means left, from starboard, which means launch the vessel into deep space. Count down to a sea launch with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a ticket and free souvenir from Deception Pass Boat Tours (up to a $25 value). Admission is free for children 3 and under. This Groupon also gets you a 10 percent discount at the Deception Pass gift shop.

U.S. Coast Guard–certified Captain Brett pilots the open-topped Island Whaler through the energetic waters to view the vivacious wildlife found in and around Deception Pass. The open deck and low-slung cabin of the Island Whaler provide easy, panoramic views of the steep, rocky landscape. Spritely fauna with unevolved senses of stage fright perform lively natural ballets in sightings that have included bald eagles, seals, porpoises, and occasional whales and pacific northwest giant octopi. Stately mountains loom on the horizon as sunlight glitters off jeweled wave crests and vistas that can be captured with the tour's complimentary souvenir or enormous butterfly nets. Captain Brett chimes in against the breeze with educational details about the pass' history, significance, and ecology.

About Deception Pass Tours


The tenure of US Coast Guard–certified Captain Brett as captain of the Island Whaler began as a dream. In the course of nine months, he had a recurring dream about an unusual flatbed boat, which replaced his normal dreams about beating up Napoleon with Horatio Hornblower. More than a year after the visions stopped, Brett discovered his fantasy boat sitting in a parking lot in Anacortes. He now owns that boat and pilots the open-topped Island Whaler through picturesque waters to view the multitudinous wildlife found in and around Deception Pass.

The open deck and low-slung cabin of the seafaring sloop grants easy, panoramic views of the steep, rocky landscape. Captain Brett chimes in against the breeze with educational details about the pass's historical significance, structures, and ecology. Throughout the tours, spritely fauna with unevolved senses of stage fright perform lively, natural ballets as visitors potentially lock eyes with bald eagles, seals, porpoises, gray whales, and Pacific Northwest giant squid.
